Jeb Bush will formally announce he is running for president on June 15
WASHINGTON — Jeb Bush will formally announce he is running for president on June 15.
The former Florida governor, who until now has toured the country as a prospective presidential candidate will drop all pretense and launch his campaign from Miami this month. The announcement will take place in the afternoon at the Miami Dade College Kendall Campus.
Bush teased the announcement on Twitter on Thursday morning with a “Coming soon…” tweet that linked to a “jebannouncement.com” where he supporters were prompted to sign up to get a chance to register to attend the event. The website is funded by “Jeb 2016, Inc.”
“He’s ready,” a Bush aide told CNN.
The location at Miami Dade College is no surprise for a candidate who has made education one of his central policy goals throughout his career and leading into his presidential run. The college is the largest in the state of Florida.
